Tom Sawyer is a forgotten Square game. They probably don't really mind that though.

I liked Chrono Trigger while I was playing it, but when I looked back after I was done I realized that there really wasn't anything in it that I liked, and that it was mostly the impressive graphics that I enjoyed.  The game itself was pretty bad IMO.  Cross was a lot better in just about all areas.

Vagrant Story didn't do it for me.  I didn't like the way weapon experience was handled in the game AT ALL, and the overall game just didn't interest me.

Threads of Fate was ok, but ultimately I don't think it's worth a second playthrough.

The only series from Square that I still see any quality in is SaGa and the SaGa team's other projects like The Last Remnant.  FF has been in the toilet since 6(Although 9 was nice), I've never liked Dragon Quest, and most of their side projects are flops.  I'll agree that TWEWY was nice, and I won't knock Star Ocean 4 until I play it.

It's ok Gen, you just have crazy taste in games.

Thoren - If you like Live A Live, I highly recommend checking out Rudora no Hihou (Rudora's Secret Treasure) on the SFC.  Brilliant game, and relatively unknown on this side of the ocean.  I'd kill for a remake/sequel to it.

I never played Rudra no Hihou much but I remember it being pretty as hell. I should give it an import maybe sometimeish. I remember a lot of people reacting pretty negatively to it, though. What's it play like? It seemed... pretty FF-ish. I know how the spell system works but that seems like it'd lead to a lot of useless spells.

Hey nothing wrong with that. Kind of felt that SaGa 3 was a majorly improved sequel -- FF:MQ was a bit grindy, after all, and what's the point of non-avoidable non-random encounters? -- but it's not a game I dislike.

Besides. Who am I to judge with MY tastes.

OOOH good choice! I hadn't thought past 16-bit.

On that note, it's not too old, nor is it "forgotten" per se, but I have to give props to SaGa Frontier II.

I have to give props to SaGa Frontier II.

Probably my favorite Square soundtrack to date, as well as one of my favorite ones overall. The music and art style in that game are just way too good.

I'd also like to mention Brave Fencer Musashi, Front Mission 3, and Final Fantasy Adventure (Seiken Densetsu).

I tried Brave Fencer Musashi a couple of times and could never get into it. Just wasn't my thing.

Saga Frontier II is an excellent game, and I think it's a pretty underrated one. I think Square were pretty much at the height of their creativity during the PS1 era.

The SaGa series are definitely underrated and unknown these days  by the average JRPG fan. Perhaps its time for a series revival?

As much as I enjoy the SaGa series as a whole, I could not enjoy SaGa Frontier 2.  Probably because it played a lot more like a generic JRPG then it did a SaGa game, and the two styles didn't mix IMO.

I would love to know what part of SaGa Frontier 2 played like a generic JRPG. If anything, SaGa Frontier 1 plays far more like your standard fare.
